Contests in 2019
« on: December 07, 2018, 07:06:54 AM »
Following @Lyn-J's suggestion, I put my thinking cap on, took your ideas on board and created a rough plan for contests in 2019. While I can't please everyone, I tried my best to come up with something that works for most.

So, here it is - the list of contests for 2019 and when they will run.

I should go with the January stash busting.  I need to find my mojo as I haven't actually sewn in months. I lost my motivation.

I had good intentions for many of this years contests but never got around to any of them.

Wow, thanks for the list and all your hard work. Just what I need to get sewing again. Some great challenges and really good to start with stash busting. My problem has been that I have too much fabric and too many patterns and not enough impetus to get on with it.

Presumably January means that it mustn't be started until Jan 1st?

We  could always have a planning competition to see who can come up with the most/best plans.  :ninja:

I will need the stash busting to stay open until at least 2020  ;)
